Educating Our Parents: Understanding the La Crosse District Curriculum
Mathematic is given special attention in the School District of La Crosse. The k-8 math program strives to achieve specific goals for mastery in the subject. Students are not taught to simply memorize facts and figures to recite and perform on tests. Instead, students are encouraged to approach mathematics with curiosity. Through group learning and discussion sessions, concepts are taught and math skills sharpened.
When it comes to language arts, the School District of La Crosse takes on a “building block” approach starting in kindergarten. Students are introduced to the world of language and English in a step-by-step process which focuses on cementing a good foundation before moving on to the next step. Once the foundation has been laid, students’ progress through elementary school honing reading comprehension and writing skills. In middle school, oral communication, writing, and literature are the focus. High school students take basic English in 9th grade to demonstrate competency, then are relatively free to pursue the language arts course options of interest.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Alternative Education in a Traditional District
Many school boards are coming to the realization that a traditional education doesn’t work for all students. The majority of children thrive in a traditional academic setting, but some children struggle. In order to address this issue, a growing number of school districts including the School District of La Crosse are funding alternative education options. There are many types of alternative education, but the most common is charter schools. Charter schools are still public schools, but have more freedom when it comes to state standards. This allows students to pursue education at their own pace and focus on areas that specifically interest them. Another option is a Montessori education where students learn by doing rather than formal verbal instruction. New alternative educational options have been popping up in districts all across America. These schools tend to focus specifically on one area of study like technology or the arts and instruct students in their given field. The advantage of these schools is that children learn valuable career skills through hands-on experience.
